EXCLUSIVE: Double Dutch International (DDI) has closed several key territories at the AFM on A.R.C.H.I.E. starring Michael J Fox.

Arc Entertainment has acquired US rights and California Filmes will distribute in Latin America, Jigsaw in Australia, Programme Store in France and Prima Cinema in Indonesia.

Robin Dunne makes his feature directorial debut on A.R.C.H.I.E., which stars Fox as a robotic canine developed by the military who befriends the niece of a small-town sheriff.

Katherine Isabelle also stars with Dunne. Shayne Putzlocher, Glenn Paradis and Sara Shaak of Trilight Entertainment produce and Clairwood Capital Management finance the feature.

Arc plans an April release after Scott Moesta negotiated the deal with DDI president Jason Moring.
